The Orthodox churches in Warsaw, Poland, were a legacy of the period of Russian annexation of this land (1813 - 1915) and the presence of the Orthodox community in the city.

They were part of the multicultural and multi-religious landscape of the city. However between, 1915 and 1939, most of them were demolished as a symbol of "hostile architecture", especially for the Soviets.

The impact on the Orthodox community was massive and contributed to a drop in their number and social role within the city at least until the fall of the Communist regime. Below you can find a map of modern Warsaw, compiled by Pawel Szczepura (University of Bologna) with the location of the main churches destroyed and a short history of each of them.
